Experience: 8 Days

good for htpc build


its small
not too much airflow
can fit in lots of tightspaces, can make a console killer with this

Experience: 2 Months

Minimalist case great for tv box


- Small
- Simple
Not the greatest of cases for a gaming rig or something that consumes a lot of power, I feel like it isn't the best for airflow. It also doesn't have a filter. It's great for having a TV computer box though. It really depends on what you build with it. Lots of people build HD boxes with it or for network storage or small servers, it's good for that.

Experience: 1 Months

Great little box


Quite compact case
Watch out for psu fitting, it says 160mm max, but like everyone here has said, it doesn't fit modular 160mm ones, will block large gpu

No way to tiddy up the cables, but that's to be expected of ITX cases
Overall great build for a small form factor case

- Compact but able to fit components well
- Fans included are relatively silent and the built-in fan controller works well
- Inexpensive but good build quality
- Awkward PSU pass-through
- Awkward case panel removal and placing back on during assembly
- Front panel audio jacks prone to noise/electrical interference when using the front USB ports simultaneously
Used for an HTPC setup for the past 3 years; the small size and design makes it a great choice for room-limited planning.

Unfortunately, a lot of the units, as evidenced from forum posts around the Internet, have the front panel audio jacks prone to noise/electrical interference; Fractal's solution is to score (cut) the PCB between the audio jacks and USB ports - replacements boards might work but the design is poor enough that the former method is more reliable. However, I rarely use those ports anyway except when in the super rare (i.e. less than 4 times IIRC in the past 3 years) occasion that I need to use headphones so I don't consider it to be a major complaint.

Experience: 3 Weeks


Stylish, Supports 6 3.5" drives. Compact. Good airflow.
Noise: the fans can be heard when on full and medium speed, hard disk noise is easily transmitted through the thin sheet metal.
No USB 2.0 front panel support anymore, no where does it say the 2.0 adapter has been dropped. No word from NCIX or Fractal support on the issue. Very disappointing.
I am using the case for a NAS/workstation build. In combination with a Syba JBOD SATA card and a couple of 4x SATA power splitters I can fit my entire collection of HDs into the case. That's 6 3.5" drives for a total of 8TB, a 750GB 2.5" and an SSD. I am using an SFX PSU that I had spare and its great for freeing up space. When all the HDs are spinning, lots of vibrations are transmitted through the case. I may need some sound dampening material. One star less. The motherboard only supports USB 2.0 on the front panel header and all the reviews showed an adapter was attached to the cable. Fractal seem to have changed the design and now no adapter is included. Their support has basically ignored me. One star less. Overall not a bad case for what its intended. My suggestion would be to use as physically small a PSU as possible to avoid cable clutter.

Experience: 3 Years


Visual appearance
The case looks good but I didn't like the amount of space for components and cables. You really need to buy components that are geared for smaller spaces (modular PSU, smaller graphics card), or it gets really cramped inside.

Experience: 1 Months


Very small footprint for a 6 drives server.
I'm usine that case for a Freenas server with a server board and a Xeon cpu and 6 HD. It make à really small, efficient and low noise server.

Experience: 2 Weeks


- Small enough.
- Looks pretty.
- Sufficient amount of fans (3).
- Great for carrying over to LAN parties!
- Cable management, but that goes without saying...
I'm really enjoying this case. Went from a Fractal R4, which is a beautiful case on its own, to the Node and I just love having my rig now sitting on the desk as opposed to on the ground. What's great is that you can still build yourself a beast of a gaming PC, all within this very small case. Sure, cable management is a bit of a pain but after a good amount of time spent on it, I figured it out and I'm very satisfied with the end result (while dealing with a non-modular PSU).

Experience: 7 Days


stylish, small, well built
small, not much room for cable management
As I mentioned this is a really nice looking case, its small and really well built. If you aren't using a water-cooler for your CPU you'll want to use a low-profile heat-sink. I didn't and it makes cabling for the disks quite difficult. Get a modular power supply and even a smaller form-factor PSU to help with cable management.

Experience: 4 Days


-Premium quality, low price, good cooling fan with dust proof.
-Space for big video card
Drive mount systhem is not perfect but ok.
I think it's the best case for an ITX built.

note: I recommend a maximum of 140mm power suply for those who want to put a long video card in this case.
